Creative Cowgirls Challenge #12 - Mum/Mom's Day/Spring

As our Challenge is based in America and it's Mother's Day over there our theme this fortnight is Mother's Day/Spring.  We were given some very beautiful images from Prairie Fairy to use.  I received In a Nutshell to use and I loved this image so much I coloured in 4 of the images so I can use them at a later date.  As a bonus we will also be sponsored by Crafty Ribbons

We are also having a Guest Designer this challenge.  Hop over to the Challenge blog to see Bridget's gorgeous work.

For my card I used Prairie Fairy 'In a Nut Shell' with backing papers from a CC flower fairy CD and flowers from stash, all edges highlighted by a Sakura Silver Calligraphy pen.  I had a nightmare with this card as I couldn't find my double sided tape or tape pen so had to use a glue pen which wouldn't stick.  I about to get out the flour and water when I found some wide double sided tape.  I eased the layers off, of which there are plenty, and stuck them down again with the tape.  I also realised I had printed my image slightly too big for my mats and I wasn't feeling too great I couldn't be bothered to print it again. By this time the light was fading, hence the rubbish picture.
